I have a bit of a problem. I have to add people to a formz animation/scene (with simple camera motion). I have been looking at Anima...

 

- I can import my formz into Anima (fbx) and add people.

 

- I can export my Anima scene as fbx (lot's of fun settings)

 

- When I import the anima/fbx scenes into formz ,there i no motion. Characters just stand still at the center of the scene (one big mess).

 

Like I said there some setting when generation the fbx from Anima (see attached); animation preset, animation format and fbx version. Does anyone have experience with this / the correct settings? ...or is it even possible?

 

Thanks

Anders

If anyone has other ideas or recommendations for how to get people into my animation – I would love to hear from you!

 

Thanks

maybe in the FBX import module animation is just not supported? i actually never tried to use FZ for animation, as my main animation program is lightwave. i also own an anima license and i am actually using it with lightwave...

Ok, I can't get Anima people into fz. I can though get them into Cinema 4D. Cinema must have much better fbx/animation support.

 

I already created stills for my client in fz, so I'd like to do my camera animation and rendering there. Now if I can get my fz animated camera into Cinema, then I could easily render the anima people separately and mix the main scene and people in post.

 

Question is (for you ADS), can I get my fz camera (animated) into Cinema?

 

I already tried fbx export/import with no luck. Also tried getting it to blender with no luck, so maybe 3dworks is right that fz does not support animation export/import with fbx? Is there another format i can use? Is a better fbx support coming?

 

Thanks

Anders
